These Medical Apps Have Doctors and the FDA Worried

These Medical Apps Have Doctors and the FDA Worried | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Iltifat Husain has seen an awful lot of sickness and injury during his time as an emergency room doctor, but lately, he’s worried about something new. He’s worried about the ill effects of mobile healthcare apps. There are hundreds of medically themed apps in Apple’s App Store and Google Play, and by most accounts, they’ve…


Now that the FDA is investigating, it will most likely work with app makers to ensure that they post adequate warnings on their unproven software. When products like these are intended to measure vital signs, they need to first be cleared by the FDA before they can be sold in the U.S., says Christopher Rush, a former FDA investigator who is now president of FDA Quality and Regulatory Consultants. And with these “recreational” medical apps, the FDA is going to take steps to ensure that consumers aren’t misled into using them for medical advice. “They’re going to ask the software developers to stop selling it until they get those warnings in place,” he says. If that doesn’t work, the FDA will most likely go straight to Apple and Google and ask them to pull the apps.

NASA’s tiny 460GHz vacuum transistor that could one day replace silicon FETs | Nano Technology

NASA’s tiny 460GHz vacuum transistor that could one day replace silicon FETs | Nano Technology | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Way back in the salad days of digital computing (the 1940s and '50s), computers were made of vacuum tubes -- big, hot, clunky devices that, when you got right down to it, were essentially glorified light bulbs. This is why early computers like the ENIAC weighed more than 27 tons and consumed more power than a small town. Later, obviously, vacuum tubes would be replaced by probably the greatest invention of all time -- the solid-state transistor -- which would allow for the creation of smaller, faster, cheaper, and more reliable computers. Fast forward to 2014, though, and the humble CMOS field-effect transistor (FET) is starting to show its age. We've pretty much hit the limit on shrinking silicon transistors any further, and they can't operate at speeds much faster than a few gigahertz. Which is why NASA's Ames Research Center is going back to the future with its new vacuum transistor -- a nanometer-scale vacuum tube that, in early testing, has reached speeds of up to 460GHz.

Researchers may have solved graphene’s production problems, cleared way for mass production

Researchers may have solved graphene’s production problems, cleared way for mass production | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
A new method of producing graphene could be the major breakthrough scientists are looking for. If the new method of producing the material on a thin polymer works at commercial scale, it could clear the way for mass production.


The potential for reproducing and adopting these graphene-like carbon nanosheets for other markets is what makes this story interesting. The team didn’t say what percent of the graphene was defect-free, but they do claim that this new manufacturing method is far simpler and less prone to failure than previous types of graphene production.


If this technique can be adapted to semiconductors or other types of solar cells, it could be far more useful than any marginal gain in organic solar cell efficiency.


According to Dr. Han Ik Joh at the Korean Institute for Science and Technology, graphene can be produced in a similar manner to carbon fiber — and while that’s hardly cheap, it’s still better than our current methods.
